08. 2011 Dodge Dakota
The 2011 Dodge Dakota is the king of the mid-size pickups when it comes to towing capacity. Extended and Crew cab versions of the Dodge Dakota are still available at dealerships across the country, and the mini-Ram starts out with a 201 horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 engine. Trailer fans will want to opt for the optional 4.7-liter V-8, however, which can be counted on to produce 302 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque and gives the truck its 7,250 lbs of maximum towing capacity. This number stands tall in the non-full-size truck segment and helps the Dodge Dakota gain fans amongst those who don't want a big rig but who still need the ability to haul a considerable load.
